Meshedit is a set of components which extend Grasshopper's ability to work with meshes. included components: utilities: Mesh from points Mesh cull unused vertices Mesh flip Mesh unify normals Mesh weld vertices with threshold analysis:
This component creates Perlin and Simplex noise. In the Grasshopper scripting on RhinoCommon here at McNeel Europe we teach to program a component that does this, in C# and Vb.Net. Grasshopper contains a 1D Perlin noise function (similar to sines summations), but this functionality cannot be directly extended to more dimensions. This add-on forms smooth 4D Perlin noise and Simlex noise, two very well-known smooth noise functions investigated by Ken Perlin.
Mesh theory and practice Have a look at the upcoming webinar on Weaverbird by Ilaria Giardiello and myself at geometrydepth.com . Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication.
Now compatible with Grasshopper 0.8.XXX. Pattern formation, emergence, self-organization, l-systems, cellular automata. What is Rabbit? RABBIT is a plug-in for McNeel’s Grasshopper that uses biological processes as a form-finding and analysis tool. RABBIT is developed and distributed by MORPHOCODE.
<<< Return to the Program Lab This page is my personal diary for exploring the API for Revit and Vasari. This page is as much a resource for me as I hope it will be for others. Developing custom tools for Revit using the API can be a complicated endeavor.
Hiroshi Jacobs is an educator, designer, and installation artist working in Washington D.C. His design work has appeared in numerous publications and exhibitions, including Surface Magazine, Businessweek, Harvard GSD Platform, DesCours New Orleans, La Biennale di Venezia, and the Harvard Arts First Festival. Hiroshi is currently a designer with STUDIOS architecture and serves as a lecturer and studio critic with The Catholic University of America. He has previously taught at Tulane University and in the Career Discovery program at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, and was recently awarded the 2012 Emerging Architect Award from the American Institute of Architects Washington DC Chapter. As a designer and academic, Hiroshi works with a particular interest in indeterminate systems and the potential reciprocities and found between technology, material, and intuitive gestures.
Lobster_IK1.ghx Lobster_IK1.3dm Lobster_IK.pdf This is still a work-in-progress, with plenty of room for improvement. I've been meaning to release this for some time - I was intending to clean it up some more and maybe compile it into a proper component first, but have been too busy with other activities, and rather than delay any longer have decided to share it in its current state. It is a purely geometric solution, specific to this particular joint configuration, which allows kinematic decoupling, greatly simplifying things.

Funicular Form Finding The Rhinoceros ® Plug-In rhinoVAULT emerged from current research on structural form finding using the Thrust-Network-Approach to intuitively create and explore compression-only structures. Using reciprocal diagrams, it provides an intuitive, fast method, adopting the same advantages of techniques such as Graphic Statics, but offering a viable extension to fully three-dimensional problems.
The ShortestWalk add-on for Grasshopper exposes one component which, given a network of curves and a list of lines, calculates the shortest route from line start point to line end points in a network. It is based on a topology calculator and the A* search algorithm. To install:
Home > Groups > KUKA|prc - parametric robot control for Grasshopper New features of the version are marked in BLUE . The experimental release is based on a rewritten and improved code-base and includes various new, exciting features that are marked in RED .
HoopSnake, apart from a legendary creature , is a component for the Grasshopper 3D platform. What it does in principle is to create a copy of the data it receives at it's input upon user request and store it locally. This duplicate is made available through a standard Grasshopper parameter output. What this means in practice is that it is possible through the use of HoopSnake to send the output of a set of components back to it's input in a looping fashion.
